STRONGSVILLE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 25, 2019--Foundation Software, developer of FOUNDATION® job cost accounting software for the construction industry, has been named a 2019 Smart Culture Award recipient by Smart Business Magazine.

Foundation was also recently presented with an inaugural Ohio Success Award by Ohio Business Magazine. Ohio Success Awards recognize businesses and leaders who demonstrate consistent success.

According to Foundation Software CEO/Chairman Fred Ode, the key to the company’s success is its strong culture of positivity and gratitude. “We see the best in people and do everything we can to take care of our employees — and always show them how much we appreciate them,” said Ode. “It’s important to us that employees know we care about each of them and that we treat them like family.”

In fact, many of Foundation’s employees are family. Many employees are related or knew each other before starting with the company: siblings, couples, college roommates and more. Ode has found that the close-knit company dynamic, reinforced by this robust internal referral program, has strengthened operations and performance.

To further bolster employee engagement and show the company’s appreciation, Foundation offers comprehensive wellness and employee appreciation programs. Monthly company-sponsored events include educational lunch and learns, ice cream trucks, and a company Olympics. In addition to an on-site gym, free fitness classes and training sessions with two on-site personal trainers, Foundation offers free tickets to Cleveland events and attractions, Doughnut Fridays and much, much more.

“My employees are the backbone of the company. We wouldn’t be where we are today without their passion, hard work and dedication,” said Ode. “I can’t do enough to thank them.”

Smart Culture Awards were distributed at an awards event at the LaCentre Conference Center in Westlake on March 14. Ohio Success Awards were distributed at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus on March 15.

Foundation Software delivers job cost accounting, project management and mobile applications, along with payroll and bookkeeping services, to help contractors run the business side of construction. For more information, call (800) 246-0800 or email info@foundationsoft.com.
